Hey y’all, welcome back from the holidaze! A few things happened while I was getting too merry that deserve their own blog posts but I’m just going to sum them all up here:

Austin Scene Report

I wrote up a report on Austin’s comics scene for Frank Santoro’s column on the Comics Journal site.

Apologizes to anyone that I didn’t include. Please don’t take it personally, I was trying to be concise, comprehensive, and art comics centric.


Whitey reviewed VORTEX on Optical Sloth on December 24th. He proclaims the battle to be “suitably majestic” and accurately leaves the gender ambiguous.

VORTEX #1 cover
I snagged this from Whitey’s site because his scanner caught the weird primary color gradient that emerged from the printing process.

Also, orders made through my online store will now be shipped much more quickly. Thanks to everyone who ordered over the last two weeks, your orders will be shipping soon.

Site Update

Over the break I fiddled around with my site.

Hypercastle site

I updated the header so that the banner randomly changes every time you load a page, changed the splash image to a randomly selected one-page comic, streamlined the content, and drew a new favicon. Please let me know if anything breaks on you.


  1. Hey thanks for mentioning Melinda and I! Awesome.

  3. Looks like a good show! Domy finally emailed me back last week (only took 4 months, haha). They ordered five copies of the first two issues of BDP. I mailed them off today so they should be there some time next week. Did I tell you yet that I thought Vortex was awesome? One of my favorite comics from 2011.

  4. Glad to hear Domy finally got back to you! I’m looking forward to seeing BDP in the ATX. When I see them in the store I’ll take a pic for you.

    Thanks man good to hear you dug VORTEX!
